Where Wildflowers Bloom by Ann Shorey

This book took me a while to get into. Until about page 150 I wasn't interested in the story at all. I sorta knew which direction the book was going (I must be reading too many of the same types of stories lately) and I found it to be predictable and somewhat boring. There weren't any surprises and it wasn't until almost a quarter of the way through the book that I realized the main character was infatuated with one man in particular and had been for years, even though he didn't seem to know she was alive. At about the same time I realized that she was also looking to go west to Oregon to start a new life. The scenario wasn't laid out very well.

About the book:
The Civil War stole a father and brother from Faith Lindberg--as well as Royal Baxter, the man she wanted to marry. With only her grandfather left, she dreams of leaving Noble Springs, Missouri, and traveling west to Oregon to start a new life, away from the memories that haunt her. But first she must convince her father to sell the family's mercantile and leave a town their family has called home for generations.

When Royal Baxter suddenly returns, Faith allows herself to hope that she and Royal will finally wed. But does he truly love her? Or will another man claim her heart?
